However, it is clear that the developers wanted to come up with a game that has a Nordic theme for a considerable duration of time. As of now, the game is code named as Kingdom. We will have to wait until the next year to get to know about the name of this game as well.
Earlier this year, Ubisoft confirmed the fact that they are not looking forward to launching a new game in the year 2020. Due to the same reason, some of the Assassin's Creed game lovers were disappointed. However, it also created hope in them because they could get hold of a better game in the year 2020.

What has tempted Ubisoft to come up with Viking theme for the new game?
Here are some of the most prominent reasons, which would have tempted the developers at Ubisoft to come up with a Viking theme for their newest game. You can go through the details and get a better understanding about what you will be able to get out of this game as well.
- There is no proper Viking RPG game
When you look at the RPG games available out there, you will notice that there is no proper Viking RPG game. Assassin's Creed 2020 is coming to fill in that gap. The two recently launched Assassin's Creed games, Assassin's Creed Origins and Assassin's Creed Odyssey are quite popular among players. That’s because these two games taped into two of the unused periods within the gaming industry. We can expect Ubisoft to carry forward the tradition by tapping into a game that belongs to the Viking Era.
Ubisoft has been able to receive lots of success by developing role playing games for the classical Greece and classical Egypt. Before Ubisoft, no other game developer has launched games for this era. Due to the same reason, an ideal platform was created for the increasing popularity of this game as well. While taking a look at the other untapped areas within the game industry, Ubisoft must have come across the Viking theme. That would have tempted the developers to come up with the Viking theme for Assassin's Creed 2020.
We can expect the new Assassin's Creed game to be popular than the previous games. That’s because the Viking theme is more interesting when compared to the other two themes of the games that Ubisoft has released in the past. Therefore, you can keep your hopes high and plan to get hold of this game.
- Viking games are getting popular
Even though you cannot find any mainstream viking games, we can find how the viking games are getting more popular among with time. This should be another reason that has tempted the developers behind Assassin's Creed to come up with the new Viking game. In fact, Ubisoft wanted to be the very first company to come up with a mainstream Viking game.
We cannot find any Viking RPG games. However, we can also see how many other Viking games are trending in the markets. This is another reason available for Ubisoft to release the game.
One perfect example for a Viking themed game to be released in the recent past include God of War, which was released in the year 2018. In addition to that, we could see how many other games, such as The Banner Saga and Hellblade have become popular in the recent past as well. Along with the popularity of these games, we can see how people are embracing Viking themed games. This would play a supportive role behind the popularity of Assassin's Creed 2020 game as well.
In the meantime, we can see how the mainstream media is playing a supportive role for the increasing popularity of the Viking themed games. That’s because superheroes such as Thor and shows such as Vikings have made Vikings closer to the lives of people. Due to the same reason, people are interested in spending more time along with the Viking games. This will eventually contribute a lot towards the popularity of the Assassin's Creed 2020 game as well.
We can assume that Ubisoft has come up with a good decision to contribute towards the future of the Assassin's Creed franchise. They will be able to launch a timely marketing strategy and take the game to a whole new level. In fact, they will not have to spend too much of effort on marketing because people will go ahead and embrace the game.
- This game offers a new niche setting
The Assassin's Creed Vikings game offers a new niche setting. Even though this will be the very first Ubisoft RPG game with a Viking setting, we can see how numerous games with Viking settings have been launched in the past. However, no game out of them are ambitious, vast and beautiful when compared to what Ubisoft will come up with. The developers who are working with Ubisoft behind this game are talented and experienced. They have the ability to come up with a perfect game and create perfect experiences for the players out there. We can see how Ubisoft has been able to do it in the past. We will also be able to see them doing the same in the future as well.
The gap that exists for Viking games out there in the gaming industry will be filled up by Assassin's Creed Viking. This game will be covering most of the details with regards to the era. In other words, this game has the potential to take the players back into the era of Vikings. Along with that, the players will be provided with the chance to roam around and experience what comes on their way as well. This game will be able to create a unique experience, which no other game out there in the market can create.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey game was extremely popular among the game lovers out there. Along with that success, some of the gamers assumed that Ubisoft will be releasing an extension to this game the next version. We cannot expect that to happen in the year 2020. That’s because Assassin's Creed 2020 will be based on a new theme, which is all about Vikings.
When you take a closer look at the games that Ubisoft has launched so far, you will also notice that there is a pattern for it as well. In fact, Ubisoft prefers to keep on trying out different formulas. Once they end up with a Gold formula, we can see how they will stick to the same formula for quite some time. In fact, Ubisoft will keep on making new versions of the same game, until the fans get fully exhausted with it. In such a situation, the gamers will go ahead and prompt Ubisoft to be innovative. That’s where they will come up with a new game.
However, we will be able to see Ubisoft breaking the trend in 2020. That’s because they will be going for a newly themed game for the Assassin's Creed 2020, even if the previous version of the game became extremely popular. We are not too sure whether they have learned the lesson from the hard way, or they wanted to be a game development company that focuses more on innovation. No matter what, it’s quite impressive to see how they have come up with a more innovative game and this will contribute a lot towards the popularity of the Assassin's Creed franchise in the future.
Ubisoft introduced the RPG formula along with Assassin's Creed Origins. They improved the RPG formula with Assassin's Creed Odyssey. We can expect them to improve the RPG formula with the newest version of the game, which will be Assassin's Creed Vikings.
- You can witness lots of historical contexts within the game
Assassin's Creed Vikings will take you on a journey into history and provide a comprehensive experience to you with that. We are already living in an interesting period, which would contribute a lot towards the popularity of the game. In the meantime, we will be able to get an enhanced experience by moving forward to get our hands on this unique storytelling game. It can deliver a staggering experience to you as well.
When you are going through the storyline of Assassin's Creed 2020, you will notice that Norse Mythology is interesting and rich when compared to Greek mythology. You can go for a ripe exploration with the help of this game. Then you will be able to get a better overall understanding about the ancient mythologies and all the unique experiences that it can offer. Hence, you will fall in love with every bit of what this game can offer to enjoy the storyline.
- This game fits perfectly well into the timeline
Assassin's Creed Vikings game is matching perfectly well with the timeline that we are in as of now. It will be a unique Assassin's Creed game. Therefore, you will be provided with a completely new gameplay experience with it. In the meantime, you will realize that Vikings are filling up an important gap that exist in the continuity of the history.
The Viking Era happened in the past along with the fall of Rome. Origins already explored the aggressive rise of the Roman Empire as well. It started when Julius Caesar came into the game.
The Dark Age was from 400AD to 1000AD. When the Viking Era comes into the timeline, the gap will be completed in history. Hence, the Assassin's Creed gamers will be provided with a comprehensive overview of history.
- This game will feature outstanding fashions
We can also expect the newest Assassin's Creed 2020 to come along with amazing fashions. It would contribute a lot towards the popularity of the game as well. The outfits of roles that you can find within this game would be unique and interesting. You will fall in love with those outfits immediately. For example, you will be able to see how the characters are wearing axes, chainmail armor, large bear fur coats and sandals. They will be completing the outfits with Odyssey’s Skirts. You cannot simply ignore the long robes and capes as well. These outfits will provide a great opportunity for you to get back into history and enjoy what is being offered to you along with time.
We can expect Ubisoft to adhere the historical accuracy. In other words, you will be able to get an accurate representation of clothes or outfits worn by people who lived back in the Viking era. Sometimes we might be able to see the cool helmets that Vikings wore along with horns. However, the horned Viking helmets are a Christian propaganda. You should be mindful about this fact when moving forward with the game. Therefore, we will have to wait for some more time to confirm the assumptions that we have about the assumptions that are related to the outfit. Even though we are not too sure whether horns will be a part of the Viking outfit or not, we can expect to find cool Viking armor in the game. This can eventually contribute towards a perfect experience that you can secure in the game.
- Ubisoft wanted to come up with a strong title
It is also clear that Ubisoft wanted to come up with a strong title for the game that they are launching in the next year. The Viking theme will provide an excellent assistance to them with achieving positive results. We can expect the PlayStation 5 gaming console to be launched by November 2020. Ubisoft will be looking forward to launching the Assassin's Creed Viking game in the same year. Along with the strong title of the game, Ubisoft will be able to contribute a lot towards the success of the game. Gamers who purchase the newest PlayStation 5 will go ahead and buy it. On the other hand, we can expect how the theme would contribute a lot towards the popularity of the game as well.
If Ubisoft can play their cards right, Assassin's Creed Vikings will be the next gen flagship video game of Ubisoft. It is a viable speculation that we can see. It will anyway be a flagship game for Ubisoft, but it will further be pushed to move forward with the graphics technology.
- This game will come along with a dark atmosphere
Ubisoft should now think about shredding the unthreatening and sterile atmosphere that can be found in their games. That’s where Assassin's Creed Vikings is coming to fill in the gap. In fact, we can expect this game to come along with a darker and mature tone. This game will be more about the assassins where the religion of them will be based upon cold-blooded murders.
Ubisoft has also adopted many other threatening and gloomy features into the Assassin's Creed Vikings game. Therefore, you can expect this game to come up with a darker atmosphere when compared to the previous two games. Hence, you will be provided with the opportunity to go through a more immersive experience through this game as well. You will fall in love with what comes along with it.
Now you have a clear picture about the latest game that Ubisoft is looking forward to launch in the year 2020, Assassin's Creed Vikings. We still have few months to go for the official launch of this game. The wait will be totally worth when compared to what this game can offer to us at the end of the day.
